Sam Burgess out of Souths clash

The Rabbitohs will be without skipper Sam Burgess for Friday night's clash with the Warriors at ANZ Stadium.

Burgess has struggled with a ribs injury in recent weeks and has been left out of South Sydney's 19-man squad for the match, with Zane Musgrove named to replace him in the side in the front row.

John Sutton will captain the Rabbitohs in Burgess's absence.

The Warriors have also made a change with Jazz Tevaga to start at hooker in place of Nathaniel Roache.
